Former Mission San Jose High pitcher Matt Imhof was the first player with East Bay ties to come off the board when the Major League Baseball draft began Thursday.

Imhof, a 6-foot-5, 220-pound left-handed pitcher from Cal Poly, went in the second round (No. 47 overall) to the Philadelphia Phillies.

He went 10-4 with a 2.54 ERA this season for the Mustangs, who reached the NCAA Tournament.

Imhof went undrafted out of Mission San Jose as an underrated prospect in 2011. He was 6-4 with a 2.97 ERA for the Warriors during his senior season. The highlight of that season was a 1-0 shutout win over North Coast Section Division I champion James Logan.
